I actually own a Windows phone, and it sucks that Google's acting like jerks. But really, what goes around, comes around.
I would say joining the board of an anti-gay marriage group would qualify as "actively campaigning." I have many opinions to which I do not contribute my time or money.
I always think of PETA as having the same extreme mindset as the NRA.
I've been using Pale Moon (a Firefox derivative) for about a year now as my primary browser, and I'm very happy with it. It has some stuff stripped out of it that seems to make it more stable, and there's a 64-bit version. http://www.palemoon.org/ for more info.
This is Amercia, so there are additional steps.
Step 8: ???
Step 9: Profit!
In Soviet Russia we had an easy access to raw chemicals and a different mindset.
You got the joke wrong.
I just don't want people to dismiss WP out-of-hand because it's Microsoft. They have foisted plenty of crap products on an unwitting public, but the WP7 is not one of them. It's a good product, that isn't for everyone, but it doesn't suck.
I installed 7.5 yesterday and I haven't had a ton of time to play around with it, what I've seen so far, I like. The multitasking is smooth, and the full integration of social media is handy. I'm not sure when I'd use the Facebook chat feature, but it works. They made some changes to the Metro UI, the best part is related to searching and scrolling.
What really blows me away are the integrated search features. Rather than having to jump to a specialized application for a restaurant, I'm able to quickly find what I'm looking for, with reviews and other information, right from the search.
The reason I chose a windows phone in the first place was because of the clean interface that presents everything I need to know at a glance. 7.5 improves upon that while making significant changes under the hood. This won't convince anyone to buy a windows phone (not sure what will), but I've been very happy with my experience.
If someone signs up for a website using my email, I immediately go there, reset their password, and change the email address to something like "firstname.lastname@example.org."
If a kid signs up for an account with me as their parent, I immediately revoke their account. I'd want someone to do that to my kids if they were trying to get around me.
Any other accounts, I do what I can to alert the company, but for the most part they get labeled as spam. If the company did not take steps to verify the email address, then it is absolutely spam, and not my problem.
I have a 3 character yahoo ID, and I get a ton of these. Unfortunately I was never able to make any impact on the person filing tax returns using my email address.
